Destination Weddings In Fiji

It’s no surprise that destination weddings are on the rise! An increasing amount of couples are choosing to forgo the traditional religious ceremony, and opting for something truly unique and memorable.


A destination wedding in a central location may be the answer for couples who have family and friends living in different states or countries. Research suggests that the average price of a wedding in Australia is between $30-$40k, destinations weddings can be cheaper.

Fiji is nestled in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and comprises of 333 islands, mostly uninhabited. Fiji exudes tropical island romance, famous for it’s white sandy beaches, pristine waters and lush tropical gardens. Fiji enjoys a warm tropical environment. During the cooler months May - November, you can expect temperatures averaging max 29 degrees. In the summer months December - April, you can expect temperatures averaging max 33 degrees.

Fiji is renown for the hospitality of it’s people. Wherever you go, you’ll be greeted with a big “Bula” and a friendly smile. Before long, you’ll feel at home, one of the family and relax into “Fiji time”.


10 Reasons Why We Love Fiji:

  1. Destination weddings can be cheaper. Many couples express frustration over wedding guests lists. There is a sense of obligation to invite extended relatives and family friends, most of whom you haven’t seen in years! With destination weddings many couples limit the guest list to close family and friends only. You can save money by choosing an all inclusive package and also by having your wedding and honeymoon in one.
  2. Spend more time with guests. Destination weddings present a unique opportunity to spend more time with guests. Many couples choose to celebrate their wedding over a few days, with pre and post wedding celebrations. Golf days, fishing trips, spa pamper packages and sunset cruises are all popular choices.
  3. Less stress. Some couples choose to plan their Fijian destination wedding themselves, where in most cases you’ll have a wedding coordinator looking after you. Others choose to book through a destination wedding specialist travel agent. Specialist agents can help you plan all aspects of your wedding, flights and accommodation, and also look after your guests travel arrangements too.
  4. Close to home. The duration of your flight will be between 3 or 4 hours, depending if you leave from Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne. A comfortable flight for those who are travelling with children and also suitable for those travelling for a short stay.
  5. Affordability. Fiji has an extensive range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, from backpacker lodging to exclusive 5 star retreats.
  6. Family friendly. You won’t find a more family friendly location than Fiji. Kids are not only welcomed, but entertained from the moment you arrive.
  7. Options. Say I-do in a beach, garden or chapel ceremony. Hold your reception under the stars! The choice is yours.
  8. Flexibility. A Fijian destination wedding allows you the flexibility to create and customise your dream wedding! How about a private intimate elopement at an exclusive adults only island resort?
